Placeholder IPC must meet the requirements of the working deployment environment | SINSMART

The IPC you choose will depend on the deployment environment in which your PC work will be done. Some people choose to deploy a regular desktop computer in an environment exposed to extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, dust, and debris, and then wonder why the computer fails so quickly. The industrial computer is required to be able to handle the changing environment of the system deployment environment.

The requirements for the work deployment environment when purchasing an industrial computer include:

Operating System compatibility: Ensure the industrial computer is compatible with the desired operating system and its versions.

Environmental conditions: Consider the operating environment's temperature, humidity, vibration, and shock levels. The computer must be able to withstand these conditions to ensure reliable operation.

Power supply specifications: Make sure the computer has a power supply that meets the requirements of the deployment environment, such as voltage, current, and power requirements.

I/O connectivity: Determine the necessary I/O connectivity requirements, such as serial, Ethernet, USB, and other interfaces.

Display compatibility: Consider the compatibility with the desired display, such as resolution, aspect ratio, and interface type.

Mounting options: Check for the available mounting options, such as wall, DIN-rail, and VESA mount, to ensure the computer can be installed in the desired location.

Certification and safety standards: Ensure the computer complies with relevant safety and certification standards, such as CE, FCC, and UL.

Data storage requirements: Consider the data storage capacity and type, such as SSD or HDD, and ensure it meets the needs of the deployment environment.

CPU and memory requirements: Consider the CPU and memory specifications, such as clock speed and memory size, to ensure the computer can handle the desired workloads.

Network compatibility: Ensure the computer has the necessary network connectivity options, such as Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or other types of connectivity, to meet the requirements of the deployment environment.


Embedded PCs are designed and manufactured with ruggedness in mind, allowing them to be deployed in environments of extreme hot or cold temperatures, vibration, shock, dust and debris.

Due to its fanless, wireless and rugged design, rugged industrial PCs are able to survive in such environments. By eliminating fans and vents in industrial computing systems, industrial computer manufacturers eliminate the possibility of dust and debris entering the system and causing internal components to fail. The result is an extremely reliable industrial computing solution that minimizes downtime and keeps you running reliably 24/7.

Additionally, the IPC is able to survive harsh environments thanks to its robust housing made of aluminum and steel. This construction protects the systems from corrosion and makes them easy to clean.

There are also different industrial PCs that offer varying degrees of protection against dust and liquids. For example, many of SINSMART's solutions are dustproof, but for users who need dustproof and waterproof, SINSMART offers many rugged industrial computers with IP rating.

At SINSMART, we understand that downtime costs money, especially in manufacturing plants that run 24/7. That's why we offer industrial computer solutions that are stress-tested to ensure reliable 24/7 operation.

With an in-house environmental testing laboratory, SINSMART is able to quickly streamline research and design into product realization. Our test engineers push industrial PCs through rigorous environmental testing to ensure reliability in industrial environments. These tests range from incubators, shock and vibration, humidity and electromagnetic interference.
